Dallas Stars lose center Brad Richards for 6-8 weeks
The Columbus victory was a costly one indeed.
Richards was evaluated by the Stars’ medical staff on Tuesday and it was determined that he had a distal radius fracture in his right wrist. The injury will not require surgery and RIchards, who was placed on injured reserve, will be re-evaluated in one month.
Richards was injured in the second period of Monday night’s game when he was checked into the boards by Columbus forward Jakub Voracek.
